House and Home

When people say the words house, and home, I think of two different things. When I hear house, it makes me think of the actual building, and the fact that it is just a place full of empty rooms and nothing more than that. But, when I hear home, I think of what’s on the inside and how, when people live inside of it and the things and memories that have taken place there. Like when you win your first tournament, or, the time where you lost your very first tooth and the tooth fairy came. “Home is where the heart is.” That line really tells you that you can go anywhere but still be home. Your family probably tells you that saying every once and awhile. That line means a lot of things to me. It means that you can be anywhere but still be where you are loved and cared for. It means that you’re never alone in the world and that there will always be someone that loves you even if they won’t admit it to you. Even when it feels like you are alone and always will be, you never are. When you fall asleep at night, you should feel that warm feeling that fills your body. That’s the love that you’ve been given and will always give. Home is immaterial, its what’s on the inside that counts.
